Sivia Harding is a force to be reckoned with in the lace design world. We’re so fortunate that she teaches here, and we’ve got a super duper exciting workshop coming up on Saturday, August 18th, from 10am – 5pm, with an hour break for lunch.
Sideways Lace Workshop
$60 with Sivia Harding
Side-to-side crescent shaped shawlettes are great fun to knit, and provide an easy introduction to designing. You will choose between a few basic options to begin your crescent shape, then we explore side-to-side knitted lace edgings and choose one to showcase in your shawlette. We will discuss lace stitches, charts, and charting. This is a no-fail method of producing a striking and unique lace garment! Students receive the benefit of Sivia’s years of experience in designing innovative lace shawls and exceptional beaded lace. This workshop is the perfect blend of lace design skills, inspiration and discovery. (There will be a one-hour lunch break.)
